So Sorry

It seems like I've need a lot of sympathy cards of late so I decided to make up several in a simple but elegant design.
To create the background: I inked up my embossing folder with Distress Oxide before inserting my white card stock and embossing. Love, love, love the way it turned out!!
It always seems more appropriate (I'm not sure why) to keep sympathy cards a little more clean and simple. With such a beautiful background it didn't need a whole lot added to it anyway.
I added a pretty seam binding bow, stamped flower with a button center, and a die cut sentiment of "sorry." To give the sentiment a little more dimension, I die cut it three times and stacked them together.
Supplies and Tools:
Victoria Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Broken China/Peeled Paint Distress Oxide, Brayer, White Seam Binding, Hampton Art Layered Flowers - Amaze, Button, Everyday Compliments (Die-Versions), Inside sentiment from Blue Ridge Impressions
